Sagicor honours women for International Women’s Day

April 09, 2022

Insurance and financial services entity Sagicor joined the rest of the globe in acknowledging International Women’s Day on Tuesday, March 8. The regional company’s outreach was two-fold and saw Sagicor team members “crowning” females in professions not ordinarily celebrated but whose work was making a difference, as well as showing appreciation to female teachers attached to its adopted schools. 

Under the theme “She’s Royal,” female clients and members of the community, were treated to crowns and gift baskets, filled with items for self-care. These included custodial workers, gas station attendants, and packers. In Barbados, the team also journeyed to the Payne’s Bay fish market to award similar treats to the female fish vendors and processors there. Additionally, at the Workman’s Primary and St. Martin’s Mangrove Primary schools, female teachers were honoured with special gift baskets as part of the company’s give back to its adopted schools.

Sagicor’s Vice President, Group Marketing, Communications and Brand Experience, Ingrid Card said the company was pleased to be able to celebrate the achievements of females on the special day.

“International Women’s Day is about celebrating the achievements of women and lifting them up. This year, we wanted to acknowledge those females who work tirelessly among us in non-traditional roles but whose work and contribution is so necessary. We extend a huge thank you to them and want to let them know that we see them and acknowledge their invaluable contributions.”
